Six residents and stakeholders from Signature HealthCARE of Fort Wayne took a short country drive to St. Joe, Indiana. There they visited Sechler’s Pickle Factory, a family-owned business that started in the basement of this house in 1921. The plant not only makes their own pickles, but makes them for other companies as well. They produce 43 different types of pickles, and all their “Strips” are packed by hand to alleviate breakage! Visitors were then treated to a “Pickle Buffet Bar” and allowed to try as many varieties as they wanted. That’s a pretty precious pickle paradise!
